Representative Text

1 Oh, let thy fear be on my heart,
Before mine eyes thy law;
That I may dwell, and never part,
With thee in holy awe.

Refrain:
We fear thee, Lord, revere thy Word,
And sit in holy awe.

2 I would not have one single tho’t
That would dishonor thee;
Or hide thy richest bounties, bro’t
So freely unto me. [Refrain]

3 In ev’ry act of life on earth
I would thy name revere,
And prove thy love of greater worth
Than dearest treasures here. [Refrain]

4 So closely to thy bosom pressed,
With arms of mercy great,
Serene and peaceful in my rest—
Oh, blessed, blessed state! [Refrain]
